Quiet and intuitive, Lady Mara Reeves has always felt more at home amid the green hills of her native Ireland than in London’s stifling ballrooms. Determined to remain single, she’s adept at gently rebuffing any suitor who comes her way. 

So why is she so drawn to Foster Sheridan, Earl of Sterling? It’s a connection unlike anything she has ever known, yet complicated by one scandalous fact: the man she believes to be her destiny is already married…

Trapped in a loveless union with a woman who refuses to divorce him, Foster is resigned to loneliness until he meets the exquisite Mara. He wants her as a wife, not a mistress, but he can’t resist her unconventional offer. Their passion is intense, as is the risk. 

For even as Foster follows Mara home to Ireland, their pasts will lead them toward danger that only the deepest love can overcome…

My Thoughts:

The Hamilton sisters all found their true loves and now it’s their extended family members turn.

Quiet and intuitive, Lady Mara Reeves has always felt more at home amid the green hills of her native Ireland than in London’s stifling ballrooms. Determined to remain single, she’s adept at gently rebuffing any suitor who comes her way. So why is she so drawn to Foster Sheridan, Earl of Sterling? It’s an impossible connection and unlike anything she’s ever known.

But it’s complicated by one scandalous fact: the man she believes to be her destiny is already married . . 

I had never read anything by this author before but after reading this book I just had to find more.
I now have the 5 book Hamilton Sisters series to delve into.
This book drew me in and just didn’t let go.
The characters are well written and the plot keeps your interest.
I liked Foster’s honesty and was pleasantly surprised that he didn’t immediately take advantage of Maura’s willingness to continue with an affair even though He already had a wife even if in name only.
He was not the usual rogue.
I gave this sometimes tragic and other times delightful love story 4.25 of 5.0 stars.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

when his kiss was wicked book 1After her father’s death, Colette Hamilton is left with four sisters, an invalid mother, and a failing bookshop.

He’s Lucien Sinclair, son of an earl, and a notorious rogue uninterested in marriage.

Unknown to Colette, Lucien has begun an urgent search for a bride, so that his ailing father might see him married before he dies. He knows what he wants – a plain, biddable woman without the curse of beauty to endanger his heart. Yet no matter how he tries, Lucien finds himself unable to stay away from Colette. And as sinful pleasure lures them ever closer to the edge of ruin, the only question that matters is whether they can survive the fall…
